(holds up phone) fruit ninja!!! emergency roadside assistance. just a click away with the geico mobile app. >>> good morning. i'm thomas roberts. tolling our agenda today, game of drones. develops right now, nominee for cia director john brennan going on the hot seat in a matter of hours as the white house makes an about face on its controversial drone program and the targeting of americans overseas. the obama administration now breaking years of secrecy and handing over a confidential 16-page memo that justifies the targeting killing of u.s. citizens abroad suspected of being terrorists. this decision to release the document came hours before brennan was to face a serious grilling by lawmakers outraged over the program. the biggest critic, democratic senator ron wyden who says the president has been stonewa
a confidential 16-page memo that justifies the targeting killing of u.s. citizens abroad suspected of being terrorists. this decision to release the document came hours before brennan was to face a serious grilling by lawmakers outraged over the program. the biggest critic, democratic senator ron wyden who says the president has been stonewalling congress for years and suggested blocking brennan's nomination. president obama called wyden specifically last night. >> clearly, the president's call to senator wyden so unusual and trying to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. >> what standard will barack obama be held to after the pictures of the little children who were killed by his cone drone attacks are placed before the jury in the hague? >> i was encouraged last night when the president called and he said as part of this effort, he is going to try to drive a more extensive discussion about these issues. every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. i don't think that, as one person said, that is too much to ask. >> so right no
it came to getting the right to vote. take a look. >> 17 of us went to the good samaritan hospital in downtown selma. just eight days later, president lyndon johnson introduced the voting rights act and later on august 6th, 1965 he signed that act into law. >> reverend barber, it is easy for people to embrace the emotion of what it means to have the right to vote and certainly what so many americans went through to get that. a lot of generations today may not appreciate what so many went through. but explain how you feel about the legitimacy of that law in 2013. >> thank you so much. if you see the diversity here as i stand here with the attorney, black and white together, when you look at the law you have to look at it through the continuum of history. in 1868, '72 we had a premeditated attack on voting rights to try to roll them back. 1968 we had a premeditated attack to roll back voting rights. now what we see are premeditated attacks to roll back our voting rights. the only way you can pass stop voter i.d. laws, gerrymandering, redistricting, race based schemes, stop those who
my district is fort knox, 5,000 civilian employees of the u.s. army. there will be substantial furloughs and possibly layoffs there if the sequester were in effect for any length of time. so we've got a few days to act. i think we could actually come up with something that just delays the sequester until march 27th. then we would have four weeks in session. we'll all be back for four consecutive weeks to figure out how to fund the government for the rest of the year. because it's -- none of it's going to make any difference after march 27th because the government runs out of money then. >> all right. so you're saying push it off just a little bit further after you get back into a legislative session but as we look at what john boehner has responded by putting out a couple tweets this morning roughly right before we went on the air, talking about where the president has been saying president obama is virtually absent from legislative process and making no discernible effort to replace mishiss sequester. he went on to say mr. president we agree your sequester is bad policy. what
is no longer with us. >> when you said officers are still in great fear, do they it doubt that this is over? >> again, if it were your family placed in jeopardy, not knowing for certain that the person that was threatening your family is no longer around and the threat no longer exists, that's a concern. so there are some families who are literally traumatized. they have young children. they have people who have schools that their kids go to and there's great fear still. that's a trauma they have to recover from. i don't have any information related to accomplices or any other person's involvement. those are parts of this investigation we have to examine and look into. >> can you comment on what the feeling was like? >> like many of you, we were listening on local internet channels that allowed us to monitor aid owe frequency. it was horrifying to listen to that fire fight and to hear those words officer down is the the most gut wrenching experience you can have as a police officer. because you know what that me means. and tragically, we learned that it truly meant just that yesterday. >> i
in the history of the u.s. military. we're expecting to get a little more information on this story from police very soon. when that happens, we will, of course, bring you the very latest live. >>> meanwhile, to alabama for the latest on that hostage standoff in its sixth straight day. law enforcement officials say this man, jimmy lee dykes, shot and killed a school bus driver and is holding a 5-year-old boy named ethan in an underground bunker. little ethan has some mild autism as well. gabe gutierrez joins us from midland city, alabama. gabe, we know authorities have been talking to dykes through that pvc pipe of some sort. do we know whether he's asking for anything? >> reporter: craig, we've been following this story for days. police are very tightlipped about what their communication with dykes involves. we don't know if he's making any demeans, but yesterday we did hear from the sheriff and saw some signs of how sensitive these negotiations have become. the shefb thariff thavsnked the for taking care of our child. law enforcement authorities may believe that the suspect has access to tele
more of your money. e-trade. less for us. more for you. >>> good morning. i'm thomas roberts. topping our agenda today, no love, anything but hearts and flowers for the president with the republicans in congress digging in over his cabinet nominee and pushing back against a prominent pillar of his second term agenda. the president is away from washington this morning. making his second post state of the union stop. he's going to land in georgia any minute where he's going to talk early childhood education. now, back in d.c., his nominee for secretary of defense chuck hagel is at the center of a senate showdown. even senator john mccain now backing away from his no filibuster stance of weeks past. the majority leader harry reid took to the floor of the last hour to make this impassioned plea. >> in less than two hours, our country will be without a secretary of defense. there is never in the history of the country been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. never. but it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense
the international community to confront challenges today and must use tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. do you think he was lying? >> no, i just think that chuck hag hagel has a long history of supporting whatever happens to be popular at the time. wherever people are looking for something, he's going to provide that, which is why we wanted to see some of his speeches he's given, some of the sources of income that he's received. so we can say, okay, he may say this on one day, but look what he said on another day. >> sir, i want to get on the record take about wayne lapierre going to give an official nra response to the president's state of the union. he put out an op-ed in which he said after hurricane sandy, we saw the hellish world the gun prohibitionists as their utopia. you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. do you support his position and how he wants to describe what it means to have gun violence regulation in this country to scare people into thinking we all need to be packing? >> well, i think we need to take a couple of st
